You can make a difference.
We have all heard the story of the little boy on the sea shore rescuing the starfish. As the boy is throwing the star fish one by one back into the sea his grandpa is telling him he can't rescue all of them and that the boys efforts wont make a difference. The boy looks at the starfish in hand, and says, "It makes a difference for this one." and throws it into the sea.
The problem with that story is that there is only one boy on the shore rescuing the starfish. Do your part, and join us on the shore either by donating or getting involved.
